Executive Summary

This facility is aware of the requirements in the areas of Safety, Hazard Reviews, written Operating Procedures, Training, Maintenance, Compliance Audits, and Incident Investigations. To assist with ongoing compliance, a "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance Manual" has been prepared and implemented. Concerning the emergency response policy at the facility, the owner has made the decision that employees will not respond to accidental releases of regulated substances and will instead evacuate.

This facility processes natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGL), and oil. A gas plant strips out NGL liquids which are stored in two 30,000 gallon pressurized bullet tanks operating at approximately 200 psig. The NGL is removed from the facility by transfers to tank trucks. A 210 barrel atmospheric storage tank is available for any condensate that might be produced in the separation process. The facility is subject to the RMP requirements since it is a natural gas processing plant producing NGL and contains treshold quantities of regulated substances.

The NGL and oil products are a mixture of hydrocarbons consisting of methane, ethane, butane, isobutane, propane, pentane, and isopentane. For purposes of determining the largest weight on site, the highest density substance was used (butane for NGL and pentane for condensate).

Since this facility is a Program 2, a documented prevention program is required. This program is discussed in a "Chemical Accident Prevention Compliance Manual" prepared for the facility. The prevention program does discuss both NGL and condensate which are the specific chemicals contained in an amount above the threshold quantity.

As documented in Section 4.0 of the RMP, the facility has not experienced a release as defined in the regulation within the past five years.

Since this facility is a Program 2, a written emergency response program is required. This program is contained in section 5.0 of the "Chemical Accident Prevention Complia
nce Manual" prepared for the facility. Further, emergency response procedures have been developed and are contained at the front of the RMP and these procedures will be implemented in the event of an accidental release or the threat of such a release. Basically, the instructions are to evacuate the facility and then notify the proer authorities.

At present time, there are no planned changes to improve safety.
